Deer licenses for the 2016-17 season are now available for purchase.
Information on license types and fees is at wildlife.IN.gov/2380.htm and if you’re still not sure what you need, you can use the DNR online sport license finder at wildlife.IN.gov/6486.htm
A new online license system requires users to set up an account to purchase licenses. Allow additional time to set up your account and enter your information if you haven’t done so already.
All adults must set up an account to purchase a license in their own name. Youth licenses (under age 18) can be purchased from an adult’s account as an “association.” You must be at least 13 to create your own account.
If you were born after Dec. 31 1986, be sure to enter your hunter education number in the profile page in your online account. The number is required to purchase a standard deer hunting license. You can find your hunter education number at dnr.IN.gov/lawenfor/7721.htm.
A crossbow license is required for you to hunt during the archery season with a crossbow. The deer license bundle allows you to take three antlerless deer or two antlerless and one antlered deer in the archery, firearm, muzzleloader and special antlerless seasons combined using legal equipment, including crossbows.
State offices will be closed on Friday, Nov. 11th for the Veterans Day Holiday. Firearms season runs from Nov. 12th-27th.
